Kitchen Colours


Kenwood KMix

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home and we agree with that. I know personally as a family we spend a lot of time in ours and want to make it an area we love and enjoy, full of fun and colour. I don't think I have ever been so excited about a new kettle in my whole life, our last kettle died a sudden death after springing a leak and rendering it useless and with something we use everyday having a decent kettle is rather important. When I came across this super stylish and colourful Kmix Kettle by Kenwood from RedCandy I instantly feel in love, it has a real retro feel to it with the modern convenience of being electric and adds a real pop of colour to our kitchen.

When it arrived I actually did a little dance around the kitchen, it had been a few days of boiling water on the stove so I was keen to try it out. It's so solid and well made and I simply love things that combine design and practicality together so perfectly as does this and it really could fit in any style of kitchen from modern to traditional.

So I am actively trying to bring in more colour into every aspects of our lives, especially since I come from such a bright and colour city that is Cape Town and sometimes Wales in comparison can feel a little grey, but even though the sun may not shine as much over here it does not mean I can't full our home with uplifting colours and you can see how we have dressed up our little seating area in this blog post. Here are a few of my other favourite things in our kitchen at the moment


kitchen storage


I love clear storage glass jars, these Kilner ones were a christmas present and I could not live without them. I have also had our retro style colander for years and it's still going strong, I love well made things. Our slightly over the top blue china plates always make me smile for some reason and I can't seem to stop buying tumblers and mugs especially on our trips to Ikea and I love using my camping ones at home, simple comforts.

  1. Hi Laura & I agree that your new yellow tea pot is a great kitchen color. I've always used bold color in my kitchens - here's my old red kitchen, http://www.hometips4women.com/kitchen-remodel-in-100-year-old-victorian ... and when we moved my husband wanted something different so now the kitchen is blue, http://www.hometips4women.com/kitchen-decorating-means-what/kitchen-blue-collection-a4w (just a photo as I couldn't find an article)

  6. I also love that yellow tea pot. . .and I don't even usually like yellow! I know what you mean about trying to brighten up the place - my hometown is kind of gray compared to other places I've lived and I'm always looking for ways to cheer it up.
